As U.S. officials continue to ramp up their response to history’s worst outbreak of Ebola, Los Angeles County public health officials said Tuesday they have no doubt that they are ready to handle any potential cases.

“I have very high confidence that we are prepared to respond to a case of Ebola should it occur … and that our collective efforts would prevent spread to others,” said Dr. Jeffrey Gunzenhauser, the county’s interim health officer.
